“It’s an intense two days. It’s exhausting and hard, but it’s also a lot of fun. I tell all my guys, ‘you’ll work your butt off at Rescue Challenge, but you’ll love every minute it.’”

– Randy Pickering, Assistant Fire Chief, Valero Wilmington Refinery Rescue Team.

What is Roco Rescue Challenge?

Rescue Challenge is a scenario-based event, focused on confined space and high angle rope rescue in industrial settings. A strong emphasis is placed on positive outcomes for the victim(s) through heavy weighting of medical scoring in the evaluation rubric. Scores are given and trophies awarded, but Rescue Challenge is really a learning competition, with skill-building and improving being the ultimate objectives.

Who Attends Roco Rescue Challenge?

One common misconception is that Challenge is only for elite rescue teams. The truth is that all teams will benefit. Our expert evaluators provide tailored feedback with the sole intention of helping each team improve as much as possible.

The event is set-up so that a team’s capability or experience level really doesn’t matter. Each team is simply responding like they would if that scenario happened at their facility. For example, some teams bring paramedics and others only have basic First Aid/CPR training. It does not matter – it is all about how each team responds and handles the emergency presented in each scenario.

How Will Roco Rescue Challenge Benefit My Team?

All Challenge scenarios are designed with teaching goals that require different rescue and rigging skills. In 2018, for example, the scenarios included simulated IDLH rescue entries with the use of SAR and SCBA equipment. Also included were single-person and multi-casualty scenarios with a mix of manikins and live victims/evaluators as patients.

Over the course of two intense days, you will satisfy the annual practice requirements of OSHA 1910.146…

  • Document your team’s confined space response capabilities.
  • Meet annual practice requirements in all six confined spaces types.
  • Confirm individual skills proficiency.

Additionally, your team will…

  • Learn from participating in realistic rescue scenarios.
  • Gain confidence in your skills and teamwork abilities.
  • Enjoy excellent training while interacting with rescue pros.
  • Share ideas, experiences, and techniques with teams from across the nation.

How Does Challenge Work?

Roco Rescue instructors brief the teams on the situation, and then teams are “on the clock” to devise and execute a plan to safely rescue the victim(s). Roco instructors closely monitor each team and provide oral and written feedback at the end. Challenge removes teams from the comfort of their home turf and presents them with rescue scenarios that test not only their technical rescue skills, but also their ability to work as a team and to think and plan under pressure.
